Mindful Chef is the UK’s number one recipe box company on a mission to make healthy eating easy with their delicious recipes, healthy frozen meals, smoothies and broths. Set up in 2015 by three friends, Giles, Myles and Rob, Mindful Chef helps us eat healthier food - and helps the community and our planet, too. As well as becoming Carbon Neutral in 2019, they’re on a journey to Net-Zero. The boxes offer zero food waste, plus they’re removing virgin plastics - and getting everything else widely recycled from the kerbside. When it comes to food, healthy eating isn’t salad on repeat. These fresh recipe boxes are full of quality ingredients, as they support award-winning British farms, and only use 100% British meat, including beef from grass-fed native breeds, free-range chicken, and sustainably sourced fish. Available for 1-2 people and families, 40 recipes are available each week, including 15 vegan choices (and 2 approved by British Heart Foundation dietitians!). Every ingredient comes pre-portioned, meals are ready in as little as 10 minutes, and it’s all easy - including their flexible subscription. For every meal you enjoy, Mindful Chef donates a school meal to a child living in poverty through charity partner One Feeds Two. That’s 10 million meals, and counting!
